Following the advent of the ABT Power S package for the B9-generation Audi RS4 facelift which brings increased power and torque, the tuning firm has revealed the breathed-on performance wagon as a complete package; enter the ABT RS4-S.
The latest from ABT is offered in two output levels – 510 PS and 660 Nm of torque, or 530 PS and 680 Nm of torque, the latter a 4,133 euro (RM20,167) cost option on the RS4-S. These power and torque figures are in line with those from the ABT Power and Power S engine upgrade packages respectively, which is comprised of an upgraded control unit and a special air intake cover, says the firm.
In base form, the RS4-S is capable of doing the 0-100 km/h sprint in 3.9 seconds, and the higher output option will potentially improve on that further. Customers can also opt to raise the speed limiter to 300 km/h. For reference, the Audi RS4 that it is based on is rated to do the same 0-100 km/h run in 4.1 seconds, onwards to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Towards the rear end are a carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) rear spoiler and rear skirt insert, while an ABT stainless steel exhaust system with 102 mm outlets trimmed in carbon-fibre finishes the set.
Inside, the RS4-S gets model-specific upholsetery, where the seat cushions feature ABT and RS4-S logos.
